    • Crowd Control Resistance Factor: 2.5 → 1.2
  • Astral Aegis:
    • Defense Factor: 0.25 → 0.2

    • Offhand scaling reworked: all offhand items now scale in exact relation to item power, i.e. they profit from Destiny Board masteries and item quality bonuses. This is not a straight bonus on top: instead, the progression curve has been reworked, so offhand bonus stats should remain at roughly the same values.
